Product Description

Want to engage your students? Introducing Elon Musk. Musk is working to revolutionize transportation both on Earth and in space.

This print-and-go activity will empower your students to learn all about Elon Musk and the revolution he has sparked.

This research primer on Elon Musk is part of the Game Changers Biography Series and can be used in a multitude of ways.

First and foremost, this worksheet is designed to help your learners scaffold their research and learn more inventor behind Pay Pal, Tesla, SpaceX and Solar City.  It can be used to complement lessons on climate change, youth activism, and leadership. How you use it is up to you, but I find it works well in the following ways:

  • As an introductory homework assignment that students complete prior to in-class research
  • As no-prep sub-plan - just book the computer lab and have your sub distribute the worksheet.
  • As a structured in-class research guide

This resource comes with three options:

  • A single-sided condensed printable version (p. 3)
  • A double-sided printable version with more room for students to expand upon their answers (p.4-5)
  • A fillable Google Slides digital version that can be shared or uploaded to Google Classroom as an assignment (link on p. 6).  

In my own class, I often use the research primers as a student-centered way to get my learners engaged with upcoming material. I tend to book the computer lab and have learners complete the guide (either individually or in small groups) over one class period. We usually start the next day with a share-out and brainstorm the findings together. This way, the students drive the content, and all I have to do is scaffold the learning and fill in the blanks. Once we are all on the same page, I introduce our larger research project.

Happy Researching!
